himalaya walnut face scrub

Clear and glowing skin is what everyone wishes for! And scrubbing it on regular basis is one of those methods that help you attain it. Scrubbing is about bidding goodbye to dead skin cells and clogged pores so that your skin gets enough space to breathe, and skin products get to penetrate more deeply and give better results. I recently picked Himalaya Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub as my previous scrub was on the verge of getting finished. I don’t know if this is a new launch or an old product, it was available on Amazon on a good deal hence picked it. I am currently trying it out, here’s how it fared 🙂 –Price- INR 130 for 100 ml

About- Himalaya’s Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub exfoliates dead skin cells to remove impurities that routine cleansing cannot tackle. It contains Crab Apple, a soothing antiseptic and keratolytic agent that helps loosen dead skin fragments. Walnut Shell granules scrub away dirt, blackheads, and dead cells, and Wheat Germ Oil is a rich source of natural Vitamin E. These natural ingredients cleanse, nourish and moisturize your skin to make it soft, fresh and radiant.My Take on Himalaya Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub- It comes in the standard Himalaya product packaging, white tube-green flip cap!! 😛 It’s an economically priced product and is available almost everywhere online and offline. It is available in a small pack of 50gm as well. It comes packed with the goodness of Apple and Wheatgerm oil. Apple, a wonderful source of vitamins and antioxidants helps prevent premature aging. Whereas, Wheat-germ oil helps to nourish and boost skin elasticity. It has cream-like texture and contains brown colored walnut scrubbing granules. Owing to the lightness in texture, it spreads nicely on the skin, granules are little harsh but okay for my liking. I work it out with easy hands so that my skin doesn’t get hurt.You simply need to take out the required quantity, apply it on the skin, massage in circular motions light-handedly for few minutes, and lastly clean off with a moist washcloth or rinse with water. It effectively clears off white-heads, blackheads, dead skin cells and you can feel the smoothness on the skin with each usage. The biggest turn-off for me about this product is its smell, it smells like medicines(syrup to be precise). I believe it’s because of the presence of apple extracts :-/ .Pros-

Swatch-Clogged pores are the cause of several skin problems as they hold oil, dirt, and grime which can lead to skin related issues if not dealt properly, the best way to unclog them is through proper scrubbing. Many of us do not understand the value of scrubbing, but it has loads and loads of benefits that are you unaware of. Incorporate regular scrubbing into your skincare regime and feel the difference yourself 🙂 !
